Pia Wurtzbach admitted that she and Filipino-Swiss race car driver Marlon Stockinger are officially together. In a live interview with Dyan Castillejo aired on ANC on Monday, the reigning Miss Universe 2015 has confirmed her relationship with Stockinger after she was asked how committed they are to each other.
“I’m glad that I finally met someone who’s very secure with himself, [and] who understands my job and who’s not afraid to let me have my moment such as right now [Miss Universe] that the competition is happening here”, says Pia.

She describes Stockinger as “very understanding” and “very funny”.
“We really get along, ‘yun masaya. I am very happy. I also love the fact that he is a Filipino, and that he’s also a Catholic. I think we have a lot of things in common”, added Pia.
Wurtzbach also added that contrary to what people are thinking, that is “no boyfriend, no weight gain” during her reign, the Miss Universe Organization actually wants the other way around. In fact, she said that her manager Esther Swan and MUO president Paula Shugart actually approved of him (Stockinger) and that they don’t want their candidates to lose weight.
